Decorations You Can Eat!
Hey everyone! Here are a bunch of really simple ways to make edible decorations. They're all very fun and kids seem to love them. I recommend adult supervision as some involve sharp knives,cocktail sticks,etc, but they're definitely worth the time! :santahat:
With a sharp knife cut a role of cling film into three sections to form ribbons,each about 10cm wide. Stretch out the ribbon and place marshmallows every 5cm. Twist the plastic ribbon and secure the sections between the marshmallows with strips of coloured or metallic tape.
Jellydrop Stars (For bigger stars use fruit pastels!)
You will need large and small jellydrops,cocktail sticks and long hairpins.Push eight cocktail sticks around a large jellydrop and a ninth one in the centre. Add small jellydrops in a variety of colours to the end of the cocktail sticks. Push the ends of a long hairpin into the centre of the large jellydrop as the hanger to slip over the ends of the tree branches.
Cut two pieces of gold cord slightly longer than you want your chain to be. the triick is to get the sweets to lie flat. This is done by weaving the two cords in and out over alternate sides of each ring. it takes about three rolls of sweets for a metre of sweet chain.
The simplest of all! Buy a bag of popcorn. With a needle, thread the popcorn onto some thread, piercing the popcorn through the middle. remember to tie the ends and enjoy!
String them up all over your Christmas trees, stair banisters, bedrooms, everywhere for truly delectable decorations! Have fun!:tree:
thanks for the neat ideas. I do a spice drop tree every year for dad. BUt this year I have thought of getting a couple cone forms to make several for centerpeices for my CHristmas Eve table. they are real easy to make
1 6'' or 8'' cone form wrapped in tin foil
2 bags of small spice drops and round tooth picks. cut the toothpicks in half and put one end into the spice drop and the other end into the tree form.
Be careful when eating the candy in case the toothpick splinters.
ooh. A spice drop tree sounds fab! I may just do one for my centre piece :)
Marshmallow Garland and Polo Chain sound good!
